** [[spoiler: Also note that the Apocrypha Generator was still active at the time. It's possible that Zanza was trying to ''kill and/or possess'' Shulk at that point, like he did with the Monado's previous wielders, and it was only because the Monado's power was suppressed that Shulk survived more-or-less intact.]]

* After the initial Mechon attack and Fiora's death, Shulk and Reyn converse about what to do from then on out. Shulk comments that there's another voice in his head telling him to "destroy the Mechon, every last one of them" and that Reyn would think it's unlike him. [[spoiler: After you realize he's housing Zanza's soul, it's entirely possible that ''wasn't'' all Shulk.]]

to:

* Three is a holy number and the game loves to reference it. The gods all have a trinity halo-pattern somewhere in their design. For Meyneth, it's around her body. For Zanza, it's three halos circling a central one above his head. [[spoiler: Alvis]] has it on his back jacket. But who else has halos on his body? [[spoiler: Shulk's red vest, indicating his ascent into godhood as Zanza's SoulJar.]]

* By the end of the game, there are three major factions: the heroes and their allies, the Mechon, and [[spoiler:the Bionite Order]]. All three get representation in the prologue. [[spoiler:Within your team, no less.]]

* During the kingpin quest chain, [[spoiler:Dedeba is arrested by the Alcamoth guards for the unlawful distribution of Highmore Caviar. You never see him again in this playthrough, so it is presumed that he is locked away for the remainder of the game.]] Now fast forward to the events follwoing [[spoiler:Mechonis Core. The majority of Alcamoth's citizens are either turned into Telethia or killed in the chaos following, with only however many half-High Entia could fit into the transports escaping. Assuming Dedeba was still locked up, that would put him directly in the middle of that mess.]]

*[[spoiler:All Faced Mechon seem to have 3 names: the name of their Core Unit (the one controlling them), a name indicative of their armor color, and their actual model name. Egil, Fiora, and Xord; Gold Face, Silver Face, and Bronze Face; Yaldabaoth, Face Nemesis, andů well, we don't learn Xord's model name--at least not immediately. It's a clever way to hide the name of a late game enemy: the Mass-Produced Faces. It's also a way to hide the fact that Xord is really just an [[EliteMooks Elite Mook]], apparently being so good at wielding his hammer because he used to be a blacksmith.]]

* The scene at Prison Island where Metal Face [[spoiler:"kills" Zanza]] may not be [[spoiler:as much of an example of EvilVersusEvil example in hindsight. Metal Face didn't kill Zanza, he killed Arglas, so it can still count as one of Metal Face's many atrocities]].

* Shortly after arriving on the Fallen Arm, [[spoiler:Fiora is incapacitated and requires a piezoelectric unit to continue functioning independently]]. You find this particular item around the wreckage of a Faced Mechon. Who's to say it wasn't [[spoiler:Mumkhar's]]?

Added DiffLines:

* The life on both titans reflects the very nature of the two gods. [[spoiler: The Bionis is filled with creatures that need to kill each other to survive, forcing a survival of the fittest mindset that is meant to keep life bound to Zanza. Gathering ether also requires people to dig into the very titan to collect it and go into mines, where monsters await to fight and kill them. The Mechonis is free of hostile lifeforms that could threaten the Machina, who are able to gather ether easily from the floating devices Meyneth built for them to collect it from. Likewise the dangers of living in a giant machine are somewhat negated due to child Machina residing in floating devices that are part of their bodies until they reach adulthood, preventing them from falling into the toxic ether found at the bottom. What monsters that ''do'' exist in the Mechonis are the Mechon, which were built originally to protect and help the Machina.]]
